The British number one eased to a 6-3 6-1 6-3 victory in an impressive one hour and 37 minutes.

Murray will now face Joao Sousa of Portugal in the second round.

There was also good news for Laura Robson. The British number two raced past American Melanie Oudin to reach round two for the first time.
